What I can do for you
My online creative writing workshops promote the importance of empathy, something we need to embrace all year round. The process and production of creative writing can help students to internalize social emotional skills. These sessions will help students to grasp the importance of compassion and insight, to comprehend the abilities necessary to put them into practice and to teach them how to interact with other human beings. Through learning about other people, it will also enable the students to understand themselves better. We need hope in our increasingly divisive world and it’s amazing what even a little empathy can do to help build a safer and more loving society.
